IN just a few hours Chris Eubank Jr will be stepping into the ring with George Groves to fight for the WBA super-middleweight title and a place in the final of the World Boxing Super Series. It is the biggest fight of his career and it’s tantalising to consider how the normally unflappable Eubank is feeling now.
“I’ve been fighting my entire life. I was nervous in my first pro fight, walking to the ring my heart was pumping at a thousand beats per second. Now I’m in my element. This is my home now,” Junior said. “I’m too hungry. I’m too committed. I’ve come too far now.”
Eubank has a simple ambition, even if it is one that will be hard to accomplish. He wants to get to the same level that Anthony Joshua currently enjoys.
